Posted On: November 19, 2015

 

The Bruyère Research Institute (BRI) proudly hosted the third annual Ontario Centres for Learning, Research and Innovation (CLRI) in Long-Term Care (LTC) conference in Ottawa on Nov. 9-10.

CLRI-Bruyere conference

Over 300 delegates attended the conference, which was a unique opportunity to highlight the work of the Ontario CLRIs and give health providers, researchers, leaders, residents and families from across North America, an opportunity to connect, learn and share as they work together to improve the quality of care provided to LTC residents and plan for the future of LTC.

Topics discussed at the conference included deprescribing, dementia care, leadership and workforce development, pain management, capacity planning and arts-based learning, just to name a few.

Bruyère also had the pleasure of welcoming members of the Seniors Quality Leap Initiative (SQLI) who held their face-to-face meeting at the conference. SQLI is a consortium of high-performing organizations in Canada and the United States that work together to reach higher performance levels in quality and safety indicators for LTC residents.

Many delegates took part in the pre conference events, which included a guided tour of Saint-Louis Residence, one of Bruyère’s two LTC homes, and of the Bruyère Village, Bruyère’s new affordable seniors’ residential complex, which bridges the gap between home and LTC by providing seniors with independent and assisted living.
